Thank you for your bugreport. Is there a specific reason this is filed under rhythmbox, or should I switch this to Firefox? It appears this bug is related to a rhythmbox crash, but you are reporting a Firefox issue.

Can you provide more information as to what is happening (ie, Firefox crash, etc.) so we can attempt to reproduce this problem?

Please try to delete that file...

sudo rm /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/rhythmbox/RBSource.html

give your user password, you will not see no screen chars when you type it, so simply type then press enter, then please also type:

sudo apt-get -f install
sudo dpkg --configure -a

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get --reinstall --purge install rhythmbox

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Then retry to install flash

Hope this helps

You must type or copy and paste previous sent commands into a terminal
So please open a terminal from Applications→Accessories→Terminal
